2gifts asks,This is a big area of concern for me, and right now, I have a large amount allocated to that in my retirement budget, but I haven't even begun to start thinking about the logistics of this. For instance, how do I go about finding health insurance? Do I just call my current carrier and see if they do individual plans? What do people in retirement do for this if they're not covered by a retiree's plan from their former employer?www.ehealthinsurance.com is a good place to start where you'll be able to get a quote on individual health insurance policies in your area. Unfortunately, some of the cheaper policies shown there will require you to have the excellent health of a candidate for astronaut training. If you have any preexisting conditions, the best thing to do is talk to an insurance agent who specializes in individual health insurance polices to see what's available.Prices in the individual health insurance market vary wildly from state-to-state. I know that health insurance in Texas costs about double what one would pay for a similiar policy in Washington State.intercst
